Off the Page with Alicia!

Hi! Alicia here today with an altered letter and fleur de lis wall hanging.  
I made this project for my sister~in~law's birthday. She loves fleur de lis. I started by painting the chipboard piece black. Then I designed the letter and vines in Cricut Design Space. I cut the flowers with a manual die cut. I cut many flowers and pieced them together inking every layer with Quick Quotes Powder Puff Chalking inks.

I added dimension by intertwining the vine with the letter and flowers.  

I popped some pieces on pop dots for more dimensional variation.

I distressed the flowers by crunching and folding to give them dimension.  I also used different papers to make them pop!

Off the Page with Martha

Hi dear friends, Martha Lucia here to share my most recent project with you. Today I have a gift bag that I made using the Catalina Island 300 paper and some PowderPuff Chalk Inks.


To create this, I used the Gift Bag Punch Board from Stampin Up in the medium size. I only used an 8"x11" piece of paper. I chose the chevron design for the outside of the gift because I love this pattern. The final size of the gift bag is 3" x 6-3/4" x 2", so it is perfect to carry medium details and small cards. I decided to combine this pattern with some stamped feathers that I cut using coordinated framelits.


My decorations come from the stamp set called Four Feathers and were stamped over very vanilla card stock using PowderPuff Chalk Ink in different colors. I used Coral, Razz-Berry, Rusty Nail, Fuchsia and Sunset. I created a banner with the baker's twine using the feathers and then tied this to the bow that I made using a burlap trim from Petaloo. As a final touch I added a little banner that I created using one sticker from the Joy Ride Die Cuts Collection.

Thank you for stopping by today and come back soon for more creative ideas!

June Club Q with Donna!

Hi there! Donna here with a layout I did using June Club Q - Ultimate Combo Kit.

I just added some bling and I was able to create this cute layout of my granddaughter swinging on a rope. She is so adventureous and is such a tomboy, but at the same time can be very girly!

Not every scrapbook page has to be square, try cutting different shapes, circles are fun as well! I cut the large shape from a sheet of Gypsy Road and the large corner pieces I used a Quikutz die.

Look at everything you get in this kit!

Here is a close-up of of the corner. The chipboard pieces are so much fun and are also included in the kit!

PowderPuff Techniques with Alicia

Hello Quick Quotes friends! Alicia with you today and I have been playing with some Powder Puff Chalking inks. I was experimenting with some vellum and embossing folders. I made a three cards for a wide variety of occasions. Vellum can be so versatile. Don't forget to check out Quick Quotes wide variety of vellum quotes. Here are some tips I discovered while playing:
  • Chalk on the back starting lightly, you can always add more to achieve your desired effect
  • Layering the vellum on a white or a light color will allow more true color to show

  • For more coverage use a brush or large sponge (blue water)
  • For more detail use a cotton swab or small sponge tip (fish)

Card Inspiration with Connie!

Hi there, Connie here with a set of cards using the Sheer Joy Word Strip by Quick Quotes. I was able to make a three card set using scrap papers from the Joy Ride Collection.  I love using up little pieces of paper, it's like  free cards!

My idea was to make cards using a grid design.  My papers were small, so I pieced together the fronts of the cards.  The background paper is Joy Ride. It worked perfectly!!  I also used small pieces of Catalina Island.

Living Your Dreams with Rhonda

Greetings and welcome to the blog today Quick Quotes friends! It's Rhonda here to share a Father's Day inspired project with you.

Live Your Dreams card featuring Baggage Claim by Quick Quotes designed by Rhonda Van Ginkel

I used the beautiful Baggage Claim collection for this project. I found the sentiment in our Sheer Joy Die Cut Stickers, then layered it on top of a black bordered sticker from the Baggage Claim Die Cut Stickers. I added the scalloped stickers that I trimmed to obscure the other sentiments from the background sticker and to frame the sentiment and give it a little "pop".

Best Day Ever with Martha!

Hi everyone, Martha Lucia here with the Best Day Ever Set to share with you. For today I created a card with an envelope using the Alton 100 paper for both projects and a combination of PowderPuff Chalk Ink to stamp the sentiments.


To create the envelope I used the Envelope Punch Board from Stampin Up. This envelope is ideal for a regular size card so I only used a 8"x8" sized paper. The Alton 100 paper has a wonderful design on both sides but I decided to keep the same design that I wanted to use for my card on the outside.

For the card, I used a butterflies die cuts to create a special design. I pasted a button on the center with a bowl of white baker's twine. Then I stamped the sentiment using two colors of PowderPuff Chalk Ink. First I stamped the image with PowderPuff Chalk Ink Evergreen and then with PowderPuff Chalk Ink Brandywine, mixing these colors I got the perfect combination for the background. For the base and second layer of the card I used regular cardstock.


One of the best things of the Alton 100 paper is the great mix of colors that both faces offered me. They inspired me to combine and mix my inks and create new colors. I am inviting you to experiment with your papers and inks and create these new colors.
